Around November/December last year my hair was in the worst condition it had been in a long time. I have always had fine hair and in 2016 I started highlighting my brunette hair. I would use silver shampoo to take the brassiness out of the blonde but I found that no matter what brand I opted for it wasn’t doing the condition of my hair any good – even if it did what it said on the tin and reduced the brassiness.
I would normally get my hair trimmed every 8 weeks or so when our hairdressers come out to our house, but due to unforeseen circumstances I had missed my last 2 appointments. My hair was dry and almost straw, like I had split ends at what felt like the end of every strand and no matter how much time I took over doing my hair I just hated how it looked and would end up throwing it up out of the way before going out.
I knew it was time to up my game on the product front so I went and spent my Boots Advantage Card points on OGX Biotin & Collagen shampoo, conditioner and oil. I wash my hair around 3-4 times a week and use the oil on wet hair before drying.
Fast forward to the end of December, just before Christmas Day. I was in town with my mum headed to our Christmas nail appointment. Mum was tired of listening to me complain about my hair so as we walked past a hairdressers she suggested I go in for a dry cut. I ended up chopping off 3 inches on a whim and straight away I was so pleased with it. Having started to nourish my hair with good products and then getting the chop just made my hair look one million times better.
This month I have added Biotin Hair Vitamins from Nood Vitamins into my hair care routine. Nood Vitamins is a UK brand selling essential vitamins and supplements exclusively on Amazon. Biotin is also found in my shampoo & conditioner and it is a water-soluble B-vitamin which is naturally found in nuts, leafy green vegetables and egg yolk – it is used in products to help support the maintenance of normal skin & hair. With the addition of these fab vitamins my hair is sure to get stronger and healthier again over the next few months.
I have continued using the OGX products and I’m definitely a convert – I always thought shampoo was shampoo and opted for the best bargain but having started using something slightly pricier I can definitely see a massive difference. I have also had another inch chopped off and I’m all about the short hair speedy drying life!
The Biotin vitamins are vegetarian friendly and you can purchase them Here.
